Not sure why, but humdinger feels like it will sit well in a nursery school rhyme or as a cartoon character….something like rumpelstiltskin (one of my favourite story book as a kid) or humpty dumpty. I came across this word on a blog and was curious as usual. Here’s what it means: Humdinger means a striking or extraordinary person or thing.
